Associated Air Balance Council (AABC)

A non-profit association of qualified, independent test and balance agencies.

As a result, testing and balancing emerged as a new specialty within the HVAC industry. Recognizing this trend and the valuable role of testing and balancing in finalizing construction projects, a small group of engineers met in 1965 to discuss ways of enhancing the reputation and technical skills of TAB professionals.
